Empress of China
The name sounds grand, but the Empress of China is an unpretentious and casual Chinatown restaurant, founded in 1971 by Gilbert Lau and Ken Louey.
Gilbert Lau branched out to establish the famous Flower Drum restaurant in 1975, and the Empress is still serving great steamed dumplings, along with honey chicken, fried rice, noodles and a wide range of other Chinese specialities.
The Empress of China is renowned for its Cantonese-style dishes including the sang choy bao filled with shark's fin, crab and scrambled egg.
It is with pleasure that we welcome you to dine in oriental splendour amid the colourful surroundings of EMPRESS OF CHINA, known for its famous Chinese food.
A mainstay of Melbourne's Chinatown!
Sun-Fri noon-3pm, daily 6pm-11pm
